The Bideford Scouts Christmas Post is back this festive season.

Bideford Area Scouts will once again be running its seasonal post service for residents in Bideford, Northam, Appeldore and Westward Ho! for cards and greetings.

Scouts and explorer scouts along with parents and leaders sort and deliver the cards in the Bideford area and stamps cost 30p.

The last posting date is Wednesday, December 12 and unfortunately business mail or parcels cannot be accepted, only Christmas cards/letters by this date.

Stamps are available and cards must be posted in the black scouts collection boxes at the following locations: Appledore News, Spar - Blights Motors, Coldstream Stores, Barton Tors Stores, F Heards Butchers, Krazy Price Cards, Northam News, St Marys's Church Bideford, Royal North Devon Golf Club, Tony's Hairdressers and The Pollyfield Centre.

Bideford Area Scouts are very grateful for the support of Stevens and Willey Accountants, which sponsor the printing of the stamps, Torridge District Council, the Link Magazine, Blight Motors and the many shops and businesses that support the appeal.
